Drawing from mātauranga Māori practise and principles, Aroora is a bicultural well-being philosophy that is applicable to people of all backgrounds.

Aroora is the framework which we use to inform our management practise and the model we use in the kaupapa Māori programmes we deliver.

The word Aroora can be broken into two kupu (words) Aro, meaning to turn towards, focus on, or concentrate on, and Ora, meaning health, life, well being.

Aroora and tikanga

Tikanga are guiding principles. Aroora has seven tikanga which allow us to express rangatiratanga and manaakitanga, key elements of the Aroora philosophy.

  • Whakapapa/connection
  • Pono/perception
  • Aroha/love
  • Mana/energy
  • Tika/rightness or correctness
  • Āio/harmony
  • Ānāianei te wā/presence

Aroora and ira tangata

Aroora encourages people to be conscious of 5 elements of the ira tangata (human element) which affect a persons ora.

  • Hinengaro/mind
  • Tinana/body
  • Wairua/spirit
  • Whānau/heart
  • Mauri ora/life principle

Aroora and direction

Aroora reminds us to have focus, which we use to inform our management practice: it is also the model we use in the programmes we run and keeps us connected to what’s important in life. There are 3 Aros in Aroora.

  • Arotahi/focus
  • Aronga/purpose
  • Arorangi/relationship
